[Rant] Looks like the G602 doesn't like the QCK mouse pad as well

Few days ago I posted saying that my new Logitech G602 mouse didn't track well on Razer Sphex mouse pad and that I had to move to the old Steelseries QCK mouse pad. Guess what? The mouse doesn't seem to like it either. Still it was better than the Sphex.

I didn't feel like spending money on a new mouse pad. So threw away both (into the closet, not to the garbage can) and started using the bare wood surface. It seems to work the best. Now that I don't have much time to play games anyways, I might just keep using the mouse this way after all.

On the other hand…

The G602 has an optical sensor, hence the mouse pads made for laser sensor might not work very well with it. I just wish the wooden surface was smoother. Then it would be perfect. It is not that rough – because the mouse has those glide pads, but there is still some resistance. One of the reasons I got this wireless mouse was to reduce the drag caused by the cable, which also counts as resistance. So if I add resistance from the surface, there is not much sense in going with an optical mouse. So if you think about it, I might have to get a mouse pad after all.
